    Jason and I arrived today, we’re thinking about doing a tapas/pub crawl on Wednesday night if anyone’s keen to join us. If your coming to Madrid before contiki look into Los amigos hostel, seems pretty great for the cheapest hostel available :) €16 dorm

    I’m currently defrosting in Malta after visiting a cold and rainy London. I will be there on 7th around 9am. As I am a mad soccer fan I will be going for a tour of the real Madrid stadium, if anyone wants to join feel free! If not people let me know up plans on the 7th

    Just to let you know James there is a Real Madrid Vs Granada match at 8pm on the 7th. Jason bought a category two ticket for about 90€ online. He’s mad about football too so he won’t be meeting up with the group on the 7th he will be at the game. Just thought I’d let you and anyone else know so you don’t miss the opportunity if you wanted to go to it.

    Ah shit I thought that the game was on the day that contiki starts. Got my dates mixed up. I will try and get a ticket when I get there as its saying it’s sold out. If I can’t get a ticket then I will meet up with group. If I do go to to soccer it will be finished by 10 and then we can meet up after. Thanks for the heads up!

    Hey guys, I should be there at Sunotel on Jan 8th sometime around 11 or 12. I’m down to meet up and will check this board. I’m comin alone from Toronto and hope to meet up with some people before the tour if possible!

    One of my friend and I have arrived at Madrid… and for sure, we have no plans here :)
    We’ll be very glad to join Jason and Sarah, so if either of you are available, just reply.
    I’ll be sticking in this web page to be posted.

    Oh, I am CHRIS. Forgot to sign in… :(

    Im keen for whatever really – maybe we should all meet and plan from there
    ?

    I meant to say I’m gonna be there on the 7th, tour starts on the 8th. So I’m down for whatever I’m sure some of us might be jetlagged and prolly take it easy first night. I’m pretty sure it’ll be close to some decent spots… anyone know if these hotels have wifi? Mapping out gets easier lol

    @Laurarose/// I am sure my friend and I will be in the Sunotel Amaral reception at 7PM, the 7th day of JAN, I’m not staying at that hotel though.

    @SummetG/// I guess that there are so many hotels in the area of the hotel where this Contiki trip will start at, for sure almost these hotels have wi-fi… but firstly, you need to check whether it’s free or not.

    true… some of the sites are kinda shitty for these places but should be fine. I’m down to find out where to buy some liqour to hold on the way.
    And this is my first time on any tour, do we have the same guides the whole trip? Or different ones as we go country to country?

  • 4 Jan 2012 CHRIS said

    CHRIS

    Apparently one guide through the trip :)

  • 4 Jan 2012 SummetG said

    SummetG

    sounds solid, hopefully we meet some pretty ladies the first night!

  • 4 Jan 2012 Laurarose said

    Laurarose

    chris – do you want to come to a tapas dinner, flamenco show, then pub crawl with us tonight? It’s run by a company called madride so if u want to find out more just google it! Costs €26 and looks like a really good deal. Otherwise, we have no plans over the next few days so if u want to meet up let us know :)

    Guys it will be 1 tour guide. There will prob be some guides that will do small trips around attractions but the main tour guide from contiki will stay the same.
